Naomi Campbell made the most unforgettable entrance of the night at the opening of "Forever - Valentino" in Qatar.
The exhibition held yesterday at Doha's M7 art museum is meant to pay homage to Valentino Garavani and his house of Valentino's decades of haute couture excellence.
For the night, Campbell dressed in full Valentino glamour, wearing an ethereal cape dress in the beloved Valentino Pink PP shade. She paired the stunning gown with a matching headpiece, which, in itself, was a work of art. The circular piece was a sort of flower crown, with large petals attached to long strands, which came together to tightly frame Campbell's face.
Adding even more glitz to the maximalist look, Campbell wore layers of diamond necklaces, as well as a silver cuff, two silver and diamond rings, and various colorful beaded bracelets. Her lipstick was pink to match her ensemble, and she wore dramatic dark eye makeup.
Hours prior to the exhibition, Campbell spoke at an EMERGE Business Talks panel discussion at The National Museum of Qatar.
Her visit to the country comes as she gets ready to host her EMERGE fashion show today at the Ceremonial Court in Doha. The event is being hosted by her charity, Fashion for Relief, in partnership with Sheikha Al-Mayassa and Qatar Creates. It is meant to spotlight and support emerging talent in fashion and the arts.
"The EMERGE Initiative helps give the next generation of creative and business talent a platform of support towards success. This initiative will create new apprenticeships, after school programmes and university programmes focused on creative and alternative industries such as general education, fashion, technology, art, sustainable innovations, and agriculture," Qatar Creates' website states.
The show will include pieces from designers from emerging regions, as well as from world-renowned fashion houses such as Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, and more.
In the days leading up to the show, Campbell has received criticism from people saying her activity in Qatar goes against the LGBTQ+ community, as homosexuality is still outlawed in the country.
But Campbell's spokesperson told MailOnline yesterday that she remains entirely supportive of the LGBTQ+ community and believes being engaged in places like Qatar is essential toward igniting positive change. "To suggest that her Emerge initiative is in any way an affront to the LGBTQ+ community shows a lack of understanding of who (she) is as a person and as a global citizen," the statement read.
